makes it special is that we have a social market economy and we have focused on environment and climate issues. we will also try to make a good basis of that. and all of the other things that make europe special. what we need to do is to change what we feel is our core values. we need to do this come as, as i have tried to do back home in denmark. we have done three things. first of all, we have kept an extremely tight budget. we have adopted a budget legislation and we can no longer exceed our budget from here on turn year-to-year. all of this means that we have a very low interest rate in denmark, we have become a safe haven. a tight budget is important. the second thing is to be on a reform friendly. we have performed so much the last year that i don't think it has any comparison in our history. we have performed early retirement, and we have now reformed the benefit system. we are trying to reform the education system. we have been on a big frenzy. there then come i feel that this is important. we have tried to bring balance into our budget. at the same time, having a focus on the g

for the environment schemes that they put in place. let me deal with each of those points. the section of the budget that includes spending on research, innovation and university funding is up by over a third. the money is handed out on the basis of quality, so britain's universities are particularly well placed to benefit. we have ensured that structural funds will continue to flow to our less well-off regions, and britain's share will remain broadly the same, at around 11 billion. while we have cut spending on the common agricultural policy overall, we have protected the flexibility that will allow us to direct funds to support both the environment and the livelihoods of our farming communities. overall, this is a better-framed budget in terms of growth, jobs and competitiveness. it is disappointing that administrative costs are still around 6% of the total, but overall spending on the cap will fall by 13% compared with the last seven-year budget. research and development, and other pro-growth investment, will now account for 13% rather than 9% of the total budget. reform of eu spending is a long-
these wild storms and damage to our environment and our economy. and he made this a very clear priority. i've organized a joint task force, and we wrote a letter to the president saying, in light of his comments, the administration needs to develop a plan of actions that they can take without congress, and actions, of course, we can try to get congress to support, but we can't wait for congress to act when we have a large number of republicans who deny there's even a problem of climate change. and one of the things that the president can do is to regulate through the clean air act at the environmental protection agency to reduce the emissions from future power plants, which is what e.p.a. has already proposed, but also existing power plants. there's technology. there's ability to do it. and the president needs to move forward and enact those kinds of regulations that will reduce these kinds of greenhouse gases. host: what industry specifically is this going to impact the most? guest: well, it will impact the utilities, which provide the power plants for electricity. many of them still use
these breakthroughs in how we produced or consume our energy, you do get to a lower carbon environment. i think that that is a good thing. we should be moving that way and are moving that way. some of it has been command and control. cafe clearly was. but think about what else has happened. you have seen a shift to more renewables. you have seen a shift towards natural gas. in my state you have seen a shift in the technology that allows us to go after our fossil fuels in a manner that again is in less intensity than the other most likely alternative. so, we are reducing our emissions and that is the way that we should be going. but, again, to take an approach that has been tried and failed, cap and trade, or a carbon tax that is designed by its nature to increase prices at a time when our economy does not need to see increased energy prices, that will not get us to a lower carbon economy. i think my vision takes us there and it is not by accident. i think it is because our desire to be in a world that has more affordable abundant clean bill of verse and secure energy has taken that step -- clea
